I first discovered DSW when I was just out of college and working at Lockheed Martin, my first “real” job. I’d swing by on my way home after work and search through the designer section, looking for something fabulous. After weeks of patient, in-person searching, I finally scored a pair of tan Marc Jacobs pumps with an ankle strap and a cool knot detail.

I still have them.

I was reminded of this recently when chatting with our girl Jeni, who was high after her own DSW score. “I just picked up…”—here she pauses for dramatic effect—”the MOST AMAZING pair of boots from Betsey Johnson! They have sparkles!!”

I immediately had to go look. Jeni is not usually a sparkles kind of girl.

Up Your Fall Shoe Game With These 10 Fab DSW Finds

True to form, the sparkly boots Jeni found aren’t just super-fancy, sparkly boots. They have a slight Western vibe, and the whole thing reads quirky and off-beat…and feels like a find. And while I was there, I noticed that DSW has a whole slew of finds — many of them designer — that caught my eye. Here are 10 pairs worth considering for fall.

P.S. If anyone is in the market for Weitzman over-the-knee boots, they have those too.

From lug-sole to Western to platform, DSW has a whole slew of designer footwear + some quirky, sparkly finds. Get ready for fall with these shoes & boots.

1. Stuart Weitzman Wonda Espadrille Sandal

This Stuart Weitzman espadrille sandal is a summer shoe that I wear well into fall. It's leg-elongating, goes with everything, & is so chic.

This espadrille sandal is the kind of shoe that becomes a summer staple but one I wear well into fall. It’s leg-elongating, goes with everything, and is sooo chic. Pair with a straw bag.


2. Vince Cypress Sandal

These Vince Cypress sandals have a contrasting trim & chunky sole, & they work well into fall.

It’s the contrast trim and chunky sole for me. These Vince sandals will work well into fall.


3. Bernando Selma Loafer

These Bernardo Selma loafers get all the details right: a lugged sole (w/ a platform), colorblocking & a walkable heel.

Chunky loafers are having such a moment, and these Bernardo Selmas get all the details right: a lugged sole (with a platform!!), colorblocking and a walkable heel. Such a find for both work and weekend.


4. SoftWalk Vellore Ballet Flat

These Softwalk Vellore ballet flats are a comfy, walkable pair but with the added detail of sexy lines on the top of the foot. Comes in a ton of colors too.

The easiest way to spoof that nonchalant French style Amanda’s talking about is to pair simple ballet flats with straight-leg jeans that have been cropped above the ankle. These SoftWalk flats are a comfortable, walkable pair but with the added detail of sexy lines on the top of the foot. Comes in a ton of colors too (I also like the beige, red or dark brown. Hmmm…).


5. Betsey Johnson Lotty Sandal

Equal parts glam and quirky. I'd pair these strappy Betsey Johnson heels with cropped, straight-leg jeans in a light wash.

shoe

Equal parts glam and quirky. I’d pair these strappy heels with cropped, straight-leg jeans in a light wash. Then, I’d add a ribbed tank (now) or an oversized, slouchy black sweater (later this fall) to let the heels really shine. So fun.


6. Stuart Weitzman Amelina 75 Sandal

This remains my FAVE dressy-shoe style. These Stuart Weitzman Amelina 75 heeled sandals have the cutest skinny heel.

shoe

This remains my FAVORITE dressy-shoe style. I’ve seriously been wearing a pair exactly like this since 2001. And…Weitzman?? YAS. Love.


7. Betsey Johnson Grant Sandal

I love how the conservative heel silhouette of these Betsey Johnson Grant sandals gets a playful combination of emerald green, rich turquoise & sparkles.

shoe

Betsey Johnson makes surprisingly comfortable shoes, and I love how the very conservative heel silhouette of these Betsey Johnson sandals gets a playful combination of emerald green, rich turquoise and sparkles.


8. Splendid Yuki Sherpa Bootie

These faux-fur Splendid boots would be so cute with my typical (& slightly boring) black puffer jacket + a pompom hat.

shoe

These faux-fur boots would be so cute with my typical (and slightly boring) black puffer jacket and a pompom hat. I’d layer these boots over leggings and really thick socks…OR cuff a pair of straight-leg jeans (or even mom jeans) at the top of this boot.


9. Betsey Johnson Emory Rhinestone Western Boot

We can vouch for the comfort of Betsey Johnson footwear, & these cowboy-inspired Western boots by Betsey Johnson are sparkly, chic & surprisingly versatile.

shoe

These are the cowboy-inspired boots Jeni snapped up, and we can both vouch for the comfort of Betsey Johnson footwear. Jeni plans to wear them with “cropped jeans or a midi/maxi skirt or dress (for a surprise peep of sparkle) and then, when it gets colder, with faux-leather pants!”

She’s also thinking of playing around with trousers too. Hopefully she’ll share pics.


10. Charles David Harrow Bootie

These Charles David chunky, lug-sole Chelsea boots go with literally every style of jeans, & the whole look is modern + fresh.

These are the chunky, lug-sole Chelsea boots that make ALL the outfits come together. They go with literally every style of jeans, and the whole look is modern and fresh.
